      Can you see the taskbar? If you cant, maybe autohide is turned on or the taskbar has been dragged out of sight

      It’s likely she managed to drag the “useable” part of the task bar over until it is too small to hold anything. Without knowing your OS I can’t give you exact instructions, but basically you need to make sure the taskbar is not locked, then find and drag the separator bar until it’s bigger.

      If the preceding answers haven’t worked, open the Windows Task Manager–click the Processes tab–locate and select Explorer.exe–click End Process–reboot.

      If the problem still persists, download and try the Taskbar Repair Tool Plus! from the following URL

      Repost and let us know if anything works.

      There are also a number of programs; instant messengers among them; that do not minimize to the taskbar but should still be visible on the far right next to yout time.

        same problem but just one program

        it’s wordperfect. I can maximize the program only by clicking alt-tab after I minimize it. The really bizarre part is that after I alt-tab it, it minimizes to the taskbar as it should.

        I’ve tried kelly’s corner a few times since that seems to be the answer that fixes everyone else’s taskbar problems and I couldn’t believe it didn’t fix mine. Are there any other fixes? I’ve already tried re-installing just WordPerfect since it seems to be the only program that does this. Thanks!
